THE SOLID PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED BY THE SPANISH SECTOR CAN BE SEEN IN ITS INTERNATIONAL RENOWN.
The ability to build and maintain interoperable infrastructures, provide traffic management systems with maximum guarantees in safety and efficiency, at very competitive prices, means that Spanish industry has an increasingly significant weighting. Its leadership is evident, for example, in the major metropolitan railway works of recent times (Riyadh, Doha, Lima, Panama). Also, rolling stock has been developed with state-of-the-art trains, with modular and flexible designs that are adapted to the specific needs of each network and operator. All this is joined by the significant contributions in terms of energy efficiency as energy recovery systems, which have made catenary-free rail traffic possible, or train-tram systems, specially designed to link urban centres and nearby towns with units that also take advantage of the commuter networks. Figures published also indicate its outstanding position. 35% of metropolitan railway networks in South America and 25% of European networks feature Spanish technology. All these milestones have made the railway administrators request the support of Spanish companies as top-level consultants and technical advisors to successfully meet the new challenges presented by providing the best and most modern solutions.
